SANTA ANA, CA. – (Sept. 9, 2020) – Team Yokohama member Andrew Carlson drove his GEOLANDAR A/T G015™ tires to the Pro Mod SXS title in the Crandon World Championship event at Crandon International Raceway.
Fellow Team Yokohama member Levi Shirley crossed the line for a third-place finish in the Ultra4 race under the lights on Saturday in the 4400 unlimited class on GEOLANDAR M/T G003™ tires.
“I’m so excited to leave Crandon as a world champion,” Carlson said. “We put in a lot of hard work to make sure we were prepared for this race and it paid off! With the Yokohama Tire GEOLANDAR tires, I know I can drive anywhere on the track and have speed.”
